Tracyanne Campbell (of Camera Obscura) and Danny Coughlan (of Crybaby) have formed the aptly named project Tracyanne & Danny. Last month, the UK musicians released “Home & Dry,” the first track off of their upcoming self-titled due out in May via Merge. Today, Tracyanne & Danny are releasing a new single and music video for “Alabama.” Check out the video below.
Del the Funky Homosapien and Amp Live, two of the most innovative and respected names in hip-ho, have just united for one of the most anticipated albums of the year, Gate 13, out 4/20. The 16 tracks on Gate 13 mix hip-hop, funk, and electronica, and feature Goapele, Eligh, Simi, Zyme, Adult Karate, Mr. Micro, and James Melo, creating a “portal into something progressive, futuristic, and fun.”
You can hear all these elements kicking on “Wheel of Fortune,” the album’s first single, which is out today. Starting out with a hard beat and Del’s steady flow, the track dips into a reggae break then picks up with a manic tempo as Del throws punches at competing talents. It’s a perfect snapshot of the album’s raw energy, technical dexterity and free-flowing finesse.
Ahead of the April 6 release of his new studio album, Song For Alpha, Daniel Avery has shared the dazzling new video for “Projector.” Avery’s latest visual offering was created by London-based design house Flat-e, the same collective behind the previously released video for “Slow Fade”.
Explaining the creation of the “Projector” visual, Flat-e explains their methodology as the “layering animations of crystalline structures, then manipulating them digitally until they appear almost fluid.”
